I have a custom activity and added to my workflow. While executing, the bot must write the start time of the workflow to a text file. How can i get the start time within my custom activity and write to output.
DateTime.Now.ToString() gets you the current time and date
I need the start time of the workflow instead of the current time. How can i get when the workflow execution started?
@dineshary I’m not sure that’s a necessary add-on to your custom activity. You can just use an Assign activity at the beginning of your workflow to mark Now.ToString.
assign it in the starting of the workflow as @pathLessTaken said above
I am building a custom activity which can be used by anyone in their workflow. Cant force to add an assign activity to the users.
So i am searching for a way to get the properties of a particular execution
If I understood correctly, you are building a custom activity and need to have property to capture the Start execution time of your activity?
Where does your custom activity derive from? CodeActivity or NativeActivty or AsyncCodeActivty
I am using native activity
